Bob Woodruff Park South Tree Planting
Over 650 trees were planted at Bob Woodruff Park (South) by partners and volunteer groups including City of Plano, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, FedEx, Alliance Data, Verizon, Capital One, and Harley-Davidson Financial Services!
With just over 40 volunteers of all ages, we finished off the last part of the Bob Woodruff Park planting partnership! Dozens of volunteers with their children in tow helped plant bareroot trees along the Rowlett Creek upper bank.
The kids had a blast digging in the dirt, planting their little trees, and discovering nature in the process. Thanks to these future foresters, the park will have trees that will grow as the children do too.
We were honored to be recognized by the City of Plano City Council with a Certificate of Commendation and Appreciation. Our efforts to beautify and better the community were joined with a purpose to provide ecological benefits to the park through trees.
Trees planted near the park will help mitigate stormwater runoff in a flood susceptible area, while also benefiting the newly planted trees with rainwater and nutrients instead of washing directly into the Rowlett creek.
We hope families and members of the community can enjoy hot summer days under cooler, shaded areas all thanks to our big giant tree friends. We are very proud of the support from the local community to be a part of the beautification efforts to keep Plano green.
